  2. This is the big news gripping Britain, queens
  3. The Boy Scouts of America announced Monday night that it will begin allowing transgender children who identify as boys into the organization. Previously, the Scouts had only allowed children to participated based on the gender listed on their birth certificate. Now enrollment in the boys-only program based on what the child or parents lists on the application, according to reports. “For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and other youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to the information on an individual’s birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs. However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and these laws vary widely from state to state,” a Boy Scouts of America spokesman said in a Monday statement. In December, the family of an 8-year-old New Jersey child who was born a girl but identifies as a boy said he was kicked out of the Cub Scouts for being transgender.

  6. Apparently he's been public with his boyfriend for a while He told his wife 10 years ago and they dealt with it together, deciding an amicable divorce was the best option. And, much to his surprise, when he came out to his son and daughter, now teenagers, they were unphased by it. 'To their generation, being gay is like your eye color — it’s just there — so they understood better than I thought.' Alan has since moved on with his life and has a boyfriend, occupational therapist Michael Smith. 'It’s awesome now because I have a partner, my ex has a boyfriend, and with our kids, we have this really beautiful, blended, loving, modern family that works for us,' he said, adding, 'my ex-wife and my kids are my greatest supporters.'
  7. "It may come as little surprise to the German capital’s thriving LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) scene that Berlin was named the best city to be single this year. GayCities received tens of thousands of votes to select the winner, with Berlin and London tying for ‘Best Singles City’ as each won 22 percent of the vote. A close second was Fort Lauderdale, Florida (21 percent), followed by New Orleans (16 percent), Seattle (12 percent) and Vienna (7 percent). Berlin is renowned for holding a number of LGBT festivals each year, including Christopher Street Day celebrations dating back to 1979, and Berlin Pride. Hundreds of thousands partake in these events each year. The city’s commitment to the LGBT community has also shown through in its care for refugees from war-torn countries, establishing Germany’s first major gay asylum centre in February." cum to Berlin
  8. It turns out that all those white people in headdresses aren't the only reason the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is incredibly problematic. In an excellent op-ed, The Washington Post unmasked the ghouls and goblins behind the Alliance Defending Freedom campaign, which is sponsoring over 200 anti-LGBT bills in 34 states, including 17 bills that specifically target transgender Americans. In addition to the usual suspects – the pipe cleaner demons behind Hobby Lobby, James Dobson, haunted scarecrow Richard DeVos, Josh Duggar, and Kim Davis' raggedy ass – the post revealed that one of the Alliance Defending Freedom's biggest cash cows is Phil Anschutz, the owner of Coachella. In addition to the ADF, the Post reveals that through parent company AEG, Anschutz is also funding extremist anti-gay, anti-transgender, anti-abortion groups such as the Family Research Council and the National Christian Foundation. Not heinous enough for you? Greenpeace has also singled out Anschutz, who made his fortunes in the fossil fuel industry, as a major financier of climate change denial groups. Take a minute to browse the interactive graphic prepared by the Freedom For All Americans coalition about the right wing cabal spending over $150 million to fund discriminatory legislation across America before you snag your $400 ticket to Coachella this year. Yes, Beyoncé is life... but maybe try Afropunk instead? Source
  9. As a tribute to the 49 victims who lost their lives in the mass shooting on June 12, 2016 at Pulse night club in Orlando, the city's MLS team added 49 permanent rainbow chairs in section 12 at the stadium, each adorned with #OrlandoStrong. The tribute was 100% privately funded.
  10. The former host of Top Gear has prompted a backlash after suggesting that men who eat ice cream are gay on the most recent episode of The Grand Tour. The 47-year-old made the comment in an exchange on the sixth episode of the motoring show he co-hosts with Jeremy Clarkson and James May, which was titled “Happy Finnish Christmas”. It was the sixth episode of the first season, which was broadcast on 23 December via Amazon Prime. Speaking in front of a live audience, Clarkson pointed out that you “couldn’t enjoy a chocolate Magnum ice cream” in the interior of a Volvo with white leather seats. “It’s alright, I don’t eat ice cream,” Hammond said. “It’s something to do with being straight.” Clarkson and Hammond appeared slightly baffled while members of the audience cheered and applauded. “Why are you applauding him?” Clarkson asked the crowd. “What do you mean... you’re saying all children are homosexual?” “Ice cream is a bit... you know,” Hammond continued, saying: “There’s nothing wrong with it, but a grown man eating an ice cream – it’s that way, rather than that way. “I’m right, I can’t believe you can’t see that. It’s easy. It’s in front of you.” Clarkson appeared to try and steer the conversation back to his joke about chocolate and the white leather seats, making a comment about “the chocolate thingy” in a 99 ice cream cone. However, Hammond seemed to think that he was agreeing with him, saying: “My case rests!” Source
  11. A gay man who adopted his partner in the absence of same-sex marriage rights has been allowed to dissolve the guardianship in order for the couple to legally marry. Esposito, 79, legally adopted Bosee Jr, 69, back in 2012, as they sought after some legal protections in lieu of same-sex marriage laws in the US. Before same-sex marriage became legal in the US, it was common for same-sex couples to ‘adopt’ one another in order to afford themselves some legal protections under the law for issues like inheritance. But despite that same-sex marriage became legal in 2014 and the US Supreme Court made gay marriage legal across all 50 states in 2015, the couple had later been unable to marry because they were legally father and son. Now a Pennsylvania Superior Court has allowed the couple to dissolve the adoption, and has set a legal precedent in the state for couples who did the same. Judge Lawrence O’Toole in 2015 said he was unable to dissolve the adoption, and that he only had the power to do so in instances of fraude. But after an appeal, a three-judge Superior Court panel ruled “under the circumstances of this case, Pennsylvania law permits an unopposed annulment or revocation of an adult adoption.” X
  12. For the first time gay dating app Hornet and China-based app Blued have entered a global cooperation. The mutually beneficial cooperation will build on funding rounds for Hornet which raised $8 million for Hornet earlier this year. Hornet, founded in 2011, claims to be “the world’s second largest gay social network.” In a statement, Eric Huet managing partner at Ventech, who has joined the Hornet Board, said: “The platform combined with the user functionality is unparalleled. In such a short time, Hornet has claimed leader position in many markets across the globe.” Hornet says it has 15 million users, and three million monthly active users. X
  13. Anti-LGBT campaigner Andrea Williams of Christian Concern had fumed about the Christmas ornaments, which were being sold by a designer on crafts website The twin decorations, which were on sale for £13 each, feature two men and two women over the baby Jesus, in place of Mary and Joseph. Venting to MailOnline, Ms Williams – whose fringe activist group supports gay ‘cure’ therapy – said: “These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy. “They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to in order to try and normalise their behaviour?’ “God’s design is for children to grow up with a male and a female parent. The Lord Jesus was parented in this way, and this is what is best for children. “The LGBT lobby is not interested in the welfare of children but only in pursuing its own selfish agenda. “Trying to rewrite the Christmas story is their latest self-deception.” X
  14. Tens of thousands of people rallied to support marriage equality in downtown Taipei on Saturday, as the debate on same-sex marriage heats up in Taiwan. Taiwan, which is home to the biggest annual gay-pride parade in Asia, is on the path to possibly legalizing same-sex marriage in what would be a first in the region. This aerial drone footage captured shots of the crowd as it gathered outside Taiwan’s Presidential Office Building: So nice to see that outside of the Western World
  15. Rachel Weisz is to play Dr James Barry, the mysterious figure who was a high-achieving medical doctor in the all-male profession in the first half of the 19th century, but who was identified as a woman after dying of dysentery in 1865. Based on Rachel Holmes’s book The Secret Life of Dr James Miranda Barry: Victorian England’s Most Eminent Surgeon, this is due to be the first feature on the subject. Barry was born Margaret Ann Bulkley in Cork, Ireland, in about 1790, but then gained a place at Edinburgh’s celebrated medical school after adopting a male disguise. Barry rose to the position of inspector general, HM Army Hospitals, after spells serving in British colonies in South Africa, the West Indies and St Helena. Also recorded is a posting to the Crimea in the 1853-56 war, during which Barry had a ferocious argument with Florence Nightingale. Barry’s gender remains a subject of controversy, with speculation around a sexual relationship with Lord Charles Somerset (over which Barry fought a duel), governor of the Cape Colony, and questions as to whether Barry identified as male, adopted the identity in order to succeed, was gender-fluid or intersex.

  16. The Arkansas Supreme Court has banned same-sex parents from appearing on the children’s birth certificates without a court order, citing “basic biological truths”. In a ruling this week, the state Supreme Court overturned a ruling from Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox, who had tried to overturn the law preventing same-sex parents from both being listed on birth certificates in the state. “‘Father’ identifies the child’s biological father, and ‘husband’ identifies the mother’s male spouse. The mother’s spouse, or ‘husband’, is entered on the certificate as the ‘father’ of the child if the mother was married at the time of either conception or birth or between conception and birth.” X
  17. Same-sex parents don't have to adopt own kids under new Ontario law All Families Are Equal Act passed the Ontario legislature unanimously Tuesday Same-sex parents in Ontario and others who use assisted reproduction to conceive no longer have to adopt their own children. The All Families Are Equal Act ensures that couples who use sperm donors or a surrogate are legally recognized as parents. It passed the Ontario legislature unanimously today, though nearly half of the Progressive Conservative caucus was absent for the vote. Some of the absent members represent the more socially conservative views in the caucus, including a 19-year-old who was elected in a byelection Nov. 17 but has delayed his swearing-in until at least Wednesday. The Liberals failed in a last-minute request to delay the vote to wait for Sam Oosterhoff, who says he is "100 per cent pro-life" and campaigned against the updated sex-ed curriculum. Social conservatives fought against the bill, upset that the term "parent" is used instead of "mother and father."
  18. LGBT rights activists in Texas fear that teachers will be forced to out pupils to their parents if proposed legislation becomes law next year. Konni Burton, a Republican state senator from Fort Worth, filed the bill ahead of the 2017 legislative session. It asserts that parents have the right to all records and information related to their child, from test scores to details of their physical and mental health and “any general knowledge”. Critics argue that if a child has confided in a teacher but not a parent it is probably because they fear harmful repercussions at home. But the bill warns that educators who fail to comply face disciplinary action, regardless of the child’s wishes. “Currently, a teacher may decide when and how to proactively reach out to a parent about anything of importance to them, which is how it should work. The proposed bill does absolutely nothing to change this present mechanism for a parent’s right to know,” she said. “The bill does, however, strengthen the existing expectation that when a parent contacts a school and inquires about their child, they will receive accurate information and not be punished by local policies that while well-intended, do more harm than good.” x
  19. Penned by Dustin Lance Black (“Milk“), executive produced by Gus Van Sant(who also directed the two-hour series premiere), and starring Guy Pearce, Mary-Louise Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Kenneth Williams, David Hyde Pierce, and many more, the show will chronicle the journey of gay rights activism starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969. Here’s the official synopsis: “When We Rise” chronicles the personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today. The period piece tells the history of the gay rights movement, starting with the Stonewall Riots in 1969. “When We Rise” will debut in February on ABC.
  21. Ricky Martin is trading in "la vida loca" and will soon prepare for a life with his soon-to-be husband Jwan Yosef. During an appearance on The Ellen Degeneresshow on Tues. (Nov. 15), the Latin singer announced that he proposed to his boyfriend of more than a year and shared how the engagement took place. DeGeneres wasted no time interrogating the singer about his love asking, "Where does he live? And how long have you know him? And how did you meet?," but despite being put in the hot seat, Martin maintained his cool. "He's a conceptual artist and I'm a collector so I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy...and then I contacted him," he told the curious host. "And then you collected him," DeGeneres joked. After sheepishly announcing his engagement, Martin revealed that he was the one to do the proposing. Admitting that he was "really nervous," Martin said popping the question wasn't as easy as he'd imagined. "Instead of saying, 'Would you marry me?' I said 'I got you something.'" Clearly it all worked out for the singer in the end. "He said yes." Martin's engagement wasn't the only major news of the day. The singer also announced his new residency in Las Vegas' Park Theater at Monte Carlo, joining past musicians Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and more recently the Backstreet Boys. "I'm really happy," he told the crowd. "You're all invited, did I just say that?" Source + video: Billboard
